Wonderful World of Color: Color Inspiration

Milissa, here, this afternoon, to provide a little color inspiration for you.  I am a blog junkie!  I have over 130 blogs in my Bloglovin' feed (no, they don't get read every day - unfortunately).  But one theme I see over and over is finding inspiration in ads or photos, for whatever your project may be.  This is not always an easy task for me to transfer to my scrapbooking as I tend to be a very literal person - color for color, flower for flower, etc.  Every now and then, though, something just clicks and it all works out.

This happened recently when I was at a retreat.  I was really struggling with which way I wanted to go with this challenge.  I had this particular challenge on my brain as I was jammin' out to my music and making Mother's Day cards.  I looked over at one of my friends at the retreat and I saw this:

That, my friends, is the rug that was on the floor beside my friend.  There is a nifty little website called Lets Chip It where you can upload a picture and it will pull out complimentary color swatches for you.

So what did I come up with for my card, you ask.  Let's see:

So there you have it.  Either use what I gave you above or look up that nifty little Sherwin Williams Lets Chip It site and use your own picture to create your own color inspiration.  Whichever way you decide to go, just GO and create something wonderful!

But don't forget to check back and see what other wonderful scrappy goodness we have coming up for you!

Happy Scrappin'
